You don't have to go far to have fun: Henley
it was raining on Friday night, we decided we'd spend the weekend on
the boat regardless. And I'm glad we did because Saturday was absolutely
glorious. We didn't go very far - just down the river to Henley
- but we had a lovely time. Moored up past the bridge on the right, had
lunch, read the papers in the sunshine (I even got the sun block out!),
went for a walk around town and then had dinner at The Little Angel
(not to be confused with The Angel just beside the bridge), which was
superb: great food, great atmosphere and great service. The perfect end
to a great day. And this morning we were treated to a display of fit
& disciplined athletes: rowers on the river and runners (the Henley
Half Marathon) on the towpath. So all in all a superb weekend.
